Incredible library and english speaking guide in this 16th century building.While there have a good look at the chapel
This monastery is very interesting to visit with a guide and it worth the ticket price. there are 2 cloisters, chambers, chorus, and it is the location of saint Rosa da lima tomb.....
I'm not a big history guide so I wouldn't pick this attraction on my own but as part of an organized tour with an interesting guide, this was a nice stop on a tour of the city.

The history in this place is amazing. There's also a wheelchair available for use while in the convent. Highly recommended.
